Every single year there are numerous classic blunders by politicians. 2013 was a wonderful year for political stupidity. President Obama scored high marks with the roll out of Obamacare, the first enrollee being someone with the strange name of Healthcare.gov. The House of Representatives were not far behind, essentially these highly paid men have spent the entire year doing absolutely nothing except bicker.

Closing the government down for 16 days was a master stroke! A 100,000 employees got an additional 16 days of paid vacation time. And of course there are the ‘deep thinkers’ we call The Senate. Without doubt Ted ‘pass the green eggs and ham’ Cruz takes the award for gross waste of time.

It would be easy to nominate any of these people and entities as being the most stupid people and organizations in the world, but that would be a huge disservice to the absolutely mega stupid.

My favorite politician has to be Toronto (that’s in Canada) mayor Rob Ford. Rob is a class act. He makes Bob Filner of San Diego look like a babe in arms. But you cannot keep a great politico whacko down. He makes John Boehner look positively sensible.

These are just a few of my favorite moments:

An early compilation:

Rob is a character!

He is always happy to dance:

Here he is in action at a church:

I have to ask the question. Just because he has been accused of smoking crack, possibly having some interests with Heroin (allegations), and prostitutes (allegations), does this make him a bad guy?

Personally I view Rob Ford as the kind of idiot I would vote for. I don’t like politicians. They are an icky brand, but at least Rob Ford makes no bones about it.

Way to go Rob!
